One of the things I've always enjoyed about MG is that his music, not just the lyrics, creates images, and I'm definitly seeing why the new album is called Hospital Music. It's quite cool.

I think it may be "bagged" drugs, rather than "bad" drugs.

 

Bagged makes sense...like an IV drip or something.

you might be right here.

 

I'm still convinced it's "wrapped the nails in your hands"

Totally, while I love getting advance tastes of the album, it's quite frustrating to not even know when it's coming considering we all know it's wrapped. I can't wait to start promoting this...

Also, I think it's "...white halls to pace and wait for it" as opposed to "...pace away from it."

 

Edit again: I'm less sure about this one, but it doesn't sound like "when we were young with heads like hammers" to me. I think it may be "when we were young and held like hammers."

Alright, after perusing through the board on MG.org and seeing what other people's thoughts were, this is what I think we have:

 

I know that it's bad

That it's the kind that they can't operate on

And I know it's real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Styrofoam coffee cups and bagged drugs that never work enough

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

When we were young and hit like hammers

I'd rap the nails in your hands

When 99% of us is failure

There's no going back

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Blackbird come the break of dawn

The TVs on, I turn it off

Walk outside, get in the car

Stare at the wheel and fall apart

 

I get it all the time

Bright eyes to bat and hide behind

But I know they're just for show, honey

Painful and just for show

Black rooms to babysit and white halls to pace and wait for it

And I know it's too slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

When we were young and hit like hammers

I'd rap the nails in your hands

When 99% of us is failure

There's no going back

And I know its real slow, honey

Painful and real slow

 

Blackbird come the break of day

You swallow the shit that people say

Walk outside look at the sky

Ask it to fall or tell you why

Looks good to me! I'd change "rap" to "wrap," but that's just me being nitpicky. Also, TVs should be TV's.

 

I love this song, but strangely, the chorus is my least favourite part by far (the entire part with the "when we were young and hit like hammers" bit.)

But if it IS "hit like hammers", then "rap" is correct, because a rap is a sudden hit.
